Reaching you fundraising minimum may be easier than you thought
The Boston Marathon is less than a month and a half away. We hope youve been busy training and fundraising for the event. As weve approached the date, weve been sharing some interesting Boston Marathon insights. Nows no different.The number of donations required to meet fundraising minimums...
The average number of donations needed to meet a fundraising goal increases with the size of the fundraising target. That makes perfect sense except for one exception; fundraisers who raised between $10,000 and $14,999 averaged fewer donations than those who raised $7,000 to $9,999. These top fundraisers receive far more donations of $100+ than other types of fundraisers, which may account for the drop in number of donations needed at higher levels of fundraising.
To raise your race minimum, you need a minimum of 36-40 donors
An analysis of donation numbers revealed that the median number of individual donations is 38, and the average number is 36. The majority of fundraisers who meet their fundraising minimum receive between 36 to 40 donations per page. Now that you only need 36 donors, it may not seem so scary to be able to reach your fundraising minimum for the Boston Marathon. So why not shoot for a higher goal?
